Elix is now available for sale! This is the first shawl that I knitted with more than one colorway of fingering yarn and I do like the color combination that I picked.
This pattern only comes in 1 size and approximately 600yard of yarn is used for it; 400 yard of main color yarn and 200 yard of contrast color yarn. I picked two solid color for this project and I believe a bright pretty variegated contrast color yarn can be a good choice for this pattern. Talk about yarn stash busters, this can be an ideal project!
